Accident occurred Monday, April 24, 2017 in Banning, CA
Aircraft: CESSNA T210N, registration: N6218Y
Injuries: 1 Minor.

This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed. NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

On April 24, 2017, about 1345 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna T-210N, N6218Y, was substantially damaged when it landed short of the runway during a precautionary landing attempt at Banning Municipal Airport (BNG), Banning, California. The private pilot received minor injuries. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed. 

According to the BNG airport attendant, he was in his office at BNG when he heard the pilot announce on the BNG common traffic advisory frequency (CTAF) that he had experienced a "massive power failure" and that he "was coming in hot for runway 26" via a right traffic pattern. The attendant looked out his office window and saw the airplane on a right downwind for runway 26; he thought the airplane appeared to be appropriately situated to make a normal landing. The attendant was aware that a helicopter was planning to depart BNG at that time, and radioed an advisory to the Cessna pilot, but the pilot never responded. 

Still from his office, the attendant then watched the airplane descend on final for landing; again it appeared normal. However, he then observed a large "cloud of dust" and realized that the airplane did not make the runway. He hurried to his truck and drove out to the airplane. The pilot emerged with a profusely bleeding nose or face, and the attendant suggested that he take the pilot to the hospital, to which the pilot agreed. Enroute to the hospital in the attendant's truck, the pilot requested that he be dropped at a rental car facility instead; the attendant then drove them to a local car rental facility, where the pilot successfully obtained a rental car. The pilot told the attendant that he had left some personal items in the airplane, and needed to retrieve them prior to obtaining medical care. He then followed the attendant back to BNG.

The two vehicles arrived back at BNG about 1420, where they were stopped by Banning Police officers. The police prevented the airport attendant from returning to the airplane, but did allow the pilot to drive to the airplane. Shortly after that, the pilot was detained by law enforcement personnel, for reasons unrelated to the accident. 

Sometime thereafter, a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector from the Riverside Flight Standards District Office arrived at the scene. He was given a brief opportunity to question the pilot, and to examine the airplane. The pilot's recitation of the sequence of events varied, but it was eventually determined that he had departed Deming Municipal Airport (DMN), Deming, New Mexico, and was destined for Corona Municipal Airport (AJO), Corona, California. Somewhere near BNG, he experienced a partial power loss. Air traffic controllers advised the pilot that BNG was the nearest airport, and he diverted there for a precautionary landing. 

Ground scars indicated that the airplane touched down about 180 feet short of the threshold of runway 26. The airplane came to rest a few feet beyond the beginning of the runway, and its nose gear had collapsed sometime during the rollout. The FAA inspector reported that the left fuel tank was completely empty, and the right fuel tank was between one eighth and one quarter full. Neither tank was breached. The FAA inspector found the fuel selector valve in the "OFF" position, but was unable to determine when it was placed in that position, or by whom. The airplane was placed in a secure hangar for further, subsequent examination.

According to the airport attendant at DMN, the airplane was fueled with 74.9 gallons about 1000 local time on the day of the accident. Radar tracking data indicated that prior to the accident at BNG, the airplane had landed at Jacquelin Cochran Airport (TRM), Thermal, California. TRM is about 433 nm west of DMN, and about 39 nm east of BNG. AJO is about 34 nm west of BNG. 

Alex Michael Furman, 24, was arrested on multiple drug related counts after a plane crash at the Banning Municipal Airport on Monday.

FAA records indicated that the pilot obtained his private pilot certificate in July 2011, and that he owned a Mooney M20 series airplane. Information provided by the FAA inspector indicated that the pilot had purchased the Cessna within a few weeks of the accident. The airplane was manufactured in 1981, and was equipped with a Continental Motors TSIO-520 series engine.

A plane’s hard landing at the Banning Municipal Airport on Monday, April 24, was only the beginning.

The case eventually involved federal agents and ended with the arrest of a 24-year-old Corona man who authorities say had drugs and a large amount of currency derived from drug sales.

After the hard landing at 1:40 p.m. Monday, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Investigations Unit were called to the Banning Municipal Airport and a 24-year-old Corona man was arrested.

Alex Michael Furman was arrested at 2:30 p.m. Monday on suspicion of several drug-related counts that included possessing more than $100,000-worth of sales-related currency and possessing, selling and transporting marijuana, according to online jail records.

He was taken into custody on Hathaway Street near the airport, jail records show and later booked at Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning with bail set at $1 million; he remained there Thursday, according to the records.

On Monday afternoon, a Cessna 210, tail number N6218Y, had a hard landing at the airport, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor.

The plane hit a fence and tipped up on its nose, Gregor said. The pilot was not seriously injured, he added.

It was not immediately clear whether the drugs or currency Furman was arrested in connection with were on the plane itself. No other information about the incident was available.
